MULTI-PLATINUM Country star Trace Adkins is set for a big week of major appearances as his upcoming 13th album approaches, starting with a nationally-televised performance. 
On August 20, the perennial hitmaker will bring his booming vocals and larger-than-life personality to NBC’s TODAY. On hand to talk about his upcoming 25th anniversary album, THE WAY I WANNA GO, Adkins will also take the stage to perform a brand-new track from the upcoming project… and his high-profile looks won’t stop there.  
Following the TODAY stopover, Adkins will also serve as a presenter at the 14th annual ACM Honors. There he’ll join a star-studded night that celebrates Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Rascal Flatts and more at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, all taking place on August 25 – just two days before THE WAY I WANNA GO is released.

Marking Adkins’ 13th studio album, THE WAY I WANNA GO features 25 tracks in total plus a top-shelf guest list featuring Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder on harmonica and more.

The Grand Ole Opry member has already released the project’s fun-filled debut single, "Where The Country Girls At" (featuring Luke Bryan and Pitbull), and fans have turned it into an instant favorite. A party-starting standout in the rip-roaring vein of his 2X PLATINUM smash, “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk,” the track has already garnered over FOUR MILLION streams and counting, while total streams for all tracks released so far have topped 8.5 MILLION. 

Meanwhile, Adkins has also returned to the road, and will continue performing this fall as part of Blake Shelton's FRIENDS & HEROES 2021 tour. Appearing on select FRIENDS & HEROES dates starting August 18 in Omaha, Nebraska, he’ll also headline concert appearances of his own, with shows lined up through the end of the year and into 2022.





In his 25-year career in Country music, Trace Adkins has sold over 11 MILLION albums, charted over 20 singles, earned numerous awards and GRAMMY nominations, and garnered over TWO BILLION streams. A Grand Ole Opry member for nearly two decades, the Louisiana native is known for dynamic baritone and fiery, always-memorable live performances, and has expanded his Country career to include film and TV acting. He broke out in 1996 with the debut album, DREAMIN’ OUT LOUD, cracking the Top 5 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with “Every Light In the House Is On” and following with the #1 smash, “This Ain’t (No Thinkin’ Thing).” Since then, Adkins has pioneered a mix of classic Country minded traditionalism and adventurous, good-natured showmanship, breaking open new avenues in modern Country through fun-filled hits like “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Hillbilly Bone” (with Blake Shelton). He’ll celebrate the silver anniversary of his album debut in 2021 with THE WAY I WANNA GO, doing exactly what he always has – mixing pure-Country reverence with standout collaborations featuring Blake Shelton, Melissa Etheridge, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder on harmonica and more. Adkins’ newest single “Where The Country Girls At” (featuring Luke Bryan and Pitbull) is available everywhere now.
